"Traces can be generated in many ways. One happens automatically when
CONFIG_IPIPE_TRACE_IRQSOFF is enabled."
What exactly does that mean? That one trace is generated during boot?
"Another way is to invoke the testsuite, namely latency or irqbench with the
option -f to trigger a freeze on each new maximum latency."
What exactly does "trigger a freeze" mean?
